Jointly Organized by Asahi Baseball Association & Japan Canada Chamber of Commerce 朝日ベースボール・アソシエーション&日本カナダ商工会議所共催

The Vancouver Asahi team was founded in 1914 and in the fall of 1921, the team made a long awaited expedition to Japan and traveled all over Japan, playing not only against university and adult baseball teams, but also against the former Wakayama Middle  School, the winner of the National Middle School Baseball Championship.

The Shin Asahi team, which was established in 2014 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Vancouver Asahi, has toured Japan every two years since 2015.

Since the 4th Japan tour of the Shin Asahi team scheduled for 2021 would be the 100th anniversary of the Vancouver Asahi team's 1921 Japan tour, Yobun Shima  thought it would be a good opportunity for the Shin Asahi to visit Wakayama Toin High School in Wakayama, which the team had not visited in the past. He came up with this idea because one of his ancestors was from Wakayama Prefecture.

Yobun Shima met Mr.Omatsu, manager of the school's baseball team. In the course of their conversations, he received a positive answer from Mr. Omatsu, and approached the Shin Asahi who decided to make it happen in 2021.

The commemorative ceremony will be held online this year.
